Last Friday, authorities raided the club’s headquarters in Turin and Milan, seizing player contracts, invoices, and financial documents as evidence

The operation was carried out in response to allegations that Juventus falsified transfer valuations between 2019 and 2021 in order to comply with Financial Fair Play requirements.

Authorities in Italy seized documents related to transfers, invoices, and financial accounts from six Juventus officials, including club president Andrea Agnelli and vice-president Pavel Nedved, as well as Juventus itself.
Fabio Paratici, who was the sporting director at Juventus until joining Tottenham Hotspur last summer, is also being investigated.

A probe by Italy’s football watchdog COVISOC and finance regulator Consob has already been opened.

In a report by Sportsmail earlier this week, the £47million deal for Cristian Romero to Tottenham in August, the same day he left Juventus for Atalanta for just £13.5m, is one of 42 transfers being scrutinized by police amid claims of false accounting.

According to the Italian publication La Gazzetta Dello Sport, the Turin Public Prosecutor may examine Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo as part of the investigation.
Its alleged prosecutors are looking into a ‘secret’ agreement Ronaldo struck with Juventus during his time there that could relate to the amount of salary he deferred at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic or severance pay he received before leaving for Old Trafford this summer.

Reports in Italy claim there are recordings of phone calls where Juventus directors talk about a ‘document that should not have theoretically existed’ in relation to Ronaldo, but investigators are yet to find the document in question.

The Juventus directors who have been questioned by prosecutors so far have also reportedly failed to explain the nature of the deal that was struck with Ronaldo, who scored 101 goals in 134 appearances for the Italian giants.

The prosecutors in the case are willing to speak to Ronaldo about the matter in the hope the forward can clear up the ‘secret’ agreement and are considering summoning him back to Italy through his agent – GestiFute’s Jorge Mendes.
